Mount Si (Snoqualmie, Wa.) WR Parker Dumas is a big wideout drawing a lot of attention from college coaching staffs. So far this spring, the 2016 prospect has pulled in two offers and he’s got a handful more that could be close to throwing their hats in the ring as well.
“I have offers right now from Wyoming and Eastern Washington and Portland State is really close to offering,” Dumas told Northwest Elite Index recently. “I have also been talking a lot with Colorado, Northern Arizona, UC-Davis, San Diego State and Utah and I’ve been getting a lot of mail from Washington and Washington State.”
This summer, Dumas plans to take a tour or the programs showing him the most interest. He recently took in the Washington Rising Stars camp this past weekend and he’ll also take visits to Colorado, Colorado State and Wyoming and he said he will try and hit Utah, Utah State and Northern Arizona.
“Yeah, I just want to check out those schools and see what they have to offer,” Dumas noted. “It’s going to be busy, but I want to meet all of the coaches and see the schools and what they have to offer and then I think I can make a better, more informed, decision when it comes time for me to make it.”
As a junior last season, Dumas hauled in over 50 receptions for 780 yards and seven touchdowns.
With his size and productivity, he’s a very tough cover for any defensive back, however, Dumas told NEI he’s still got plenty of things he wants to work on this offseason.
“I definitely want to get faster, get my 40 (yard dash) time down to 4.6s if I can,” Dumas said. “I also want to get quicker feet out of my breaks and get more yards after the catch.”
Dumas is nearly 6’5″ and he weighs just over 200 pounds and with his soft hands and jumping ability, he’s a player who can be a real asset at the next level if he finds the right system to play in.
Northwest Elite Index will have more on Dumas in the coming weeks and months as he continues to work his way through the recruiting process.
